The H Roundup Welcome to The H Roundup, your rapid review of the week with the most read news on The H, the security alerts and open source releases, and the essential feature articles – all in one quick-to-scan news item.

Top News

The week's most read news was about the arrival of a second beta of GNOME 3.2 and the return of trojans that hide inside a PC's BIOS and survive even the hard disk being changed. A tool appeared which automated social engineering on Facebook and the Linux Foundation and BitTorrent's uTorrent servers both suffered security breaches. We also had the latest on the Raspberry Pi ARM-based computer, Qt's independence, Ubuntu application development, Wine and Google's most recent bulk patent purchase.

Featured Articles

This week saw the latest installment of CSI:Internet as the forensic experts dived into the RAM of a PC to find evidence of tampering. The H also had Thorsten Leemhuis's latest Kernel Log looking at the x32 ABI, Andrea Müller talked with the openSUSE community, and Richard Hillesley looked at Arch Linux and its philosophy.
